In what way does the duty to accommodate apply to PSAC members in receipt of disability insurance benefits?

Many workers who have been off work and receiving disability insurance will eventually return to the workplace in some capacity. The majority of disability insurance policies which apply to PSAC members have provisions for rehabilitation assistance. However, the basic principals of the duty to accommodate, apply in these types of situations and can facilitate a successful reintegration back into the workplace.

For further information and assistance members see “Disability Insurance” section of the PSAC website.
